Christmas Trends 2018
One of our favourite parts of the festive season is getting to decorate our trees,adorn your home and set the table in a different style every year. We've ventured across the seas and travelled interstate this past year to collect ideas and bring you our favourite trends this coming Christmas.Let the magic of Christmas 2018 begin!
Wabi Sabi / Nordic
Originating from the Japanese language,Wabi-Sabi means to accept imperfection.It is a belief and aesthetic based on recognising that something incomplete can become beautiful.A design example we love is expanding on our connection to the earth through natural materials.This trend is taking over from the Hygge trend (the cosy contentment of simple living) and leads into a Scandinavian tone but with a focus on abandoning perfection.Focus on textures such as metal and driftwood to incorporate this beautifully flawed trend into your home this Christmas.
Green,red and gold.The combination of these colours has screamed Christmas for centuries.Add a few little berries to your wreath to enhance the festive ambience and decorate the tree in finishes of glitter,matte and shiny for a contemporary twist.Make a statement with vibrant red poinsettias or keep it familiar by dressing the house in colours reminiscent of a childhood waiting for Santa.We love incorporating an Australian twist into the European traditional Christmas though suspended native foliage and decorations in the form of gum nut babies and Aussie characters.
Since the rise of the Millennial pink trend,we're embracing all the feminine energy we can find to spread the pink love into Christmas.From gorgeous merino lamas,fairy and angel decorations to vibrant bubble gum baubles,we love pink this Christmas.Don't get overwhelmed by the feminine shade;pair with black accents,scandi wood finishes and opulent mirror details to offset any lingering thoughts of school yard scrunchies.Hailed as the 'new neutral',this delicate blush pink will find its way into your hearts and home.
We promise the royal wedding didn't inspire us... okay maybe a little bit..but we can't go past divine jewel tones for Christmas this year.Sapphire,amethyst,ruby red and emerald green are some embellishments we're embracing around the Christmas tree.Modern and moody,this trend inspires us to circle around the tree on velvet cushions and dress our tables in dramatic silks and indulgent coloured glassware.Provocative colour of the year,Ultra Violet sings loud in this trend as it makes its way from the catwalk onto our foliage.Pair these decadent colours with geometric decorations for a true avant-garde Christmas.
Glitz & Glam
Last year our showroom was a luxe interior of black and white patterns with a hint of gold extravagance.This year the trend continues in a form of glitz and glam.Indulge in atmospheric lighting and go head first into the trend by lavishly decorating your entire home.We believe there is no such thing as too much glitter and this trend proves that merriment and glam go hand in hand.Gold charger plates matched with black crockery make for a dreamy table setting as the tree gets draped in honey and amber ribbon.
